Nugglin'




I realized that haven't posted any pictures of Layla in a while...SHAME ON ME!  I pulled out the camera the other day and couldn't resist taking pictures of her playing on/in? mommy and daddy's "BIG bed".  I think she could play on that bed for hours...making sheet tents and "nugglin".  She's just now getting to that stage where she notices a camera out and hides from it...so she was a difficult subject.  I think I took three pictures before she said, "no mommy".  So I listened and put the camera away.  


On an unrelated note (and for anyone who may care), I've decided not to run the half marathon in May.  Spending $60 for 13.1 miles in this economic climate seems a little silly--especially after reading about and seeing children in my own community who have nothing to eat.  I'm still trying to decide how to spend my $60...any suggestions?  

SO, I think dad and I will probably head out the same weekend I was going to do the race and just do our own half marathon.  I need to run a race so that I'll know how to build my training for the Marine Corps Marathon in October and Boston in April...YAY!  Do you guys know how excited I am about the MCM...running such a huge and inspirational marathon with dad.  PRICELESS!  I think I'm equally as excited about doing Friday night and early morning long runs with dad in the summer--seeing fireflies across dark fields, listening to tree frogs, oh yeah...and dodging cars...that was so much fun last year and those are times that I will treasure forever, I'm sure.
